Question Points Question

Okay...I can't remember who all is doing WW on here...Anyhow...I have a question that I tried to get answered on both the WW website and the WW board on here, to no avail.

Lite microwave popcorn is 1 Point for 3 cups. That should mean that 9 cups (a whole bag) is 3 Points. However, when I enter it in as 3 servings on the WW Online journal, it counts it as 5 Points. Now, someone has explained that it's because the Points calculator stops at 4 g. of fiber, so that skews that numbers. However, no one can tell me what I want to know: Do I really count it as 5 points, or as 3? To me, it makes no sense to have it equal one amount if I eat it all at once and another amount if I were to eat, say, 3 cups 3 times a day. (BTW, I have also run into this problem with snow peas....1 c. = 0 Points but 2 c. = 1.5 Points.)

Help!

Ok just my 2 cents....have you ever noticed that somethings are on the higher end of a point? Well maybe if the popcorn is a high 1 (example 1-2/3) then 3 times that would be 5. Maybe they figure it that way...who knows.

Your welcome at least it keeps you honest with yourself so you don't overeat your points then wonder why you gain

I would count it as 5. I think it's what Kim said.

I've noticed that when I have 2 servings of something that's 2 points for one serving, it ends up at 5 points. It must have been 2.5 points or something per serving in my example.
